Mt. Gilead High School Reviews

My high school experience at Mount Gilead would be described as the average high school experience. I’ve played multiple sports, so I was always at a sporting event cheering on classmates. At a small town school sports were the townspeople would come out for. Even though we were never the greatest the same people came to support every game. The academics at my high school were poor, we lost funding for AP classes and other electives. The teachers are amazing and really care about the students but the overall administration is very disheartening, school spirit is rarely found by the administration and never seem to make the right decision on funding, new coaches, and other tasks. My high school is in a very small rural community. With that there is very little diversity in the student body. We currently have two African American kids in our high school, and five Hispanics.

I liked the how close everyone in the school is because Mt. Gilead is so small. Most teachers here seem to care about the students and will invest time into you so that you can learn the subject. Overall, what I will like to see change is the diversity in not just the high school, but also the town. Since this town is mostly white, there is a lot of close mindedness in the overall town. I have heard comments about other races and ethnicities from my peers, so I think more diversity will help them open up. Also I would like to see more classes at Mt. Gilead high school. Although I was somewhat challenged, I feel like I missed the opportunity to take some classes that some people are taking at other schools.
Overall my experience with this school is short. I haven't been here long. But I have had amazing experiences. There are always a few quirks that these kinds of things come with. There are a few classes I wish I could take but have now been taken out of my academics. Overall the staff and administration is very good. The principal is a wonderful person and every teacher is amazing. The school board is a bit questionable on some of the cases that they have brought to the communities attention. Overall the students, staff, and everything in between is a wonderful experience.
